Warrior football has come to an end.

As the season comes to an end we lose some of the most important players on the team. The seniors have played their last snap at Waldorf. Seniors are important in any program because of experience they bring to the field. The spot light seniors to reflect on their time here at Waldorf are Tanner Roush, Preston Landon, and Darnell Colvin.

Tanner Roush is a four year senior who left to the National Guard and returned to play ball with the Warriors. Tanner played offensive line before he made the change to play long snapper. Long snapper is a key position in the Warriors special teams. Roush said, “Getting to play college football was a dream come true. Ever since I was a kid I wanted to play football in college. Getting to play at Waldorf was a very unique situation because of the town and college. It was a great experience. What I am going to miss the most is walking into the locker room with my brothers and also watching us get better.”

Preston Landon was a transfer student athlete and played here at Waldorf for two years. He was a captain of the Warriors and started at corner. Landon said, “My time at Waldorf has been real. I’ve learned a lot about myself as a football player, but more importantly as a man. I have learned something from every teammate I have been with. I believe God placed me here for a reason.”

The final senior, Darnell Colvin, was also a two year player at Waldorf. He was the starting defensive end for the Warriors and an impact player. He said, “I’ve been here for two years, and I have learned a lot being at Waldorf. I learned to keep fighting through hard times. I will miss my teammates the most out of everything.”

These seniors are gone now and the Warriors say farewell, but the Warriors are excited to see what the next season brings to the program.
